This is a speciality of my grandma who prepares very tasty doddak.This same dish can be prepared by adding fish (mackeral),mushrooms.
1 cup chopped ladysfinger
1 cup grated coconut
5-6 Redchillies
Tamarind extract
4-5 Teppal(Sichuan pepper)(optional)
2-3 Tumeric leaves(optional)
Grind grated coconut,redchillies and tamarind into a fine paste.Add salt and the ground masala and crushed sichuan pepper (Teppal)to the ladysfinger.In a heavybottomed pan ,add little oil then add the masala in it.
Spread the Tumeric leaves over it and keep on low flame.This dish can be made without adding teppal and tumeric leaves.Serve hot with dal and rice
